Hi Seo,

> I am trying to open unix socket with '-A unsock' option.

it is the other way: You need a program which provides the
unix socket so that snort can write to this. Every alert
is then written to this socket, take a look at the file


and there at the beginning the structure Alertpkt, this one
is written to the socket. So you need a process wich creates
the unix domain socket and waits for packets of this format.

Best regards
